I’ve mentioned in the past that, from 1978 to 1992, I was really into the NFL thing. However, I then became disenchanted with pro-football.
Don’t get me wrong. I loved playing football. I loved the strategy of the game. And, I loved hitting people. So, to this day, there’s a part of me that digs football – it’s just that I don’t follow the game as a fan.
Nonetheless, some of my all-time favorite movies are football movies. And, of those, this one may be my all-time favorite football movie. The character of Phillip Elliott struck a cord with me. And, of course, this flick gets two-thumbs up for the way they told it like it is, or, at the least, was, in terms of what goes on in pro-football.
